Medical Malpractice in PA
Schuylkill County Injury Attorneys Fighting for the Rights of Victims
We place an extraordinary amount of trust in medical professionals. We expect for them to uphold a standard of care and safety when we place our health and well-being into their hands. While many people will readily reassure you that doctors, nurses, and surgeons know what they are doing and will take care good care of you, the facts suggest otherwise. Preventable medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States-this amounts to 10% of all deaths in the country.
Holding Negligent Individuals Accountable
Because the stakes are so high when it comes to medical practice, we must demand that a strict duty of care must be upheld by healthcare professionals. When the negligent behavior of a practitioner causes the serious injury or death of a patient, it is known as medical malpractice. When this occurs, you should seek the aid of an attorney as soon as possible.
